"It’s just a wholly, wholly different thing... I couldn’t imagine anyone more suited for the tone of the original Frank Herbert novels than Denis. There are some things that are — for lack of a better word — nightmarish about what you see… There’s just this kind of brutalist element to it. It’s shocking. It’s scary. It’s very visceral. And I know that definitely between Denis and myself and Chalamet and Rebecca Ferguson as the family unit, we really searched for the emotion of it. I’m beyond myself with excitement. I think it’s good to feel cool, unique, and special.”
I'm like a sand-worm in search of sweet sweet spice out here, thirsty for any and all information we can get about Denis Villenueve's Dune film (or films, maybe), and so these little tidbit type nuggets that Oscar Issac threw at EW this week are keeping me alive for another few days. Release a photo already, dammit! Anyway as to the content of what Oscar had to say -- I think David Lynch's movie is a mess but it's not exactly a surprise, seeing what he did 35 years ago, that somebody would make this material look "nightmarish" right?
